Default 2009 Wu-Tang Corp Album Review thread

New Album Review scores...Dopium, Chamber Music, OB4CL2, Wizard of Poetry added.

Let me first clarify, I was only responsible for compiling the data the forum gave me in ILC polls. I DID NOT choose the order, you did.





#41 - Mr. Xcitement

Artist - U-God
Year - 2005

# of classic tracks = 1
It's a Wrap

I'm Talkin' to You
Bump

Other than the catchy back and forth patter of It's a Wrap, not much is gained from listening to this album with poor production and few guest appearances. Generally considered the worst Wu-Tang album ever made.


Track average 1.72
Weighted score 0.00
Total Score = 1.72

0.5 Stars


#40 - Tical 0 : The Prequel

Artist - Method Man
Year - 2004

# of Classic Tracks = 3
What's Happenin'
The Turn
Afterparty

The Motto
The Show

Perhaps not as bad as everybody thinks, this album is still an overall disappointment for fans of Method Man, who seemed to ignore Wu-Tang production in favor of a more popish direction. It didn't work.


Track average 1.75
Weighted score 0.50
Total Score = 2.25

1 Star



#39 - The Lex Diamond Story

Artist - Raekwon
Year - 2004

# of Classic Tracks = 3
Pitbull Fights
Musketeers of Pig Alley
Once upon a Time

All Over Again
Clientele Kid
Pa-Blow Escablow

The absolute low point of Raekwon's career, Lex Diamond features poor production, lazy lyrics, and a generally jagged flowing album unsuitable for multiple replays.


Track average 2.36
Weighted score 1.00
Total Score = 3.36

2 Stars

#38 - The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 2009

# of Classic Tracks = 1
Stapleton Sex

Do Over
Baby
Stay
Guest House

Lonely
Forever


An experiment that strays far from the Wu-Tang sentiment, to the intricacies of relationships. It's a grown up album, but that doesn't make it a good album. Ghostface's shortest and poorest effort.

Track average 1.99
Weighted score 1.50
Total Score = 3.49

2 Stars


#37 - The Resident Patient

Artist - Inspectah Deck
Year - 2006

# of Classic Tracks = 2
Sound of the Slums
A Lil' Story

C.R.E.E.P.S.
All I Want is Mine

A largely overlooked release from Inspectah Deck, The Resident Patient features little guest appearances and little Wu-Tang production. The two stand out tracks are far and away better than the rest of the album.

Track average 1.89
Weighted score 2.20
Total Score = 4.09

2.5 Stars


#36 - The Big Doe Rehab

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 2007

# of Classic Tracks = 1
Yolanda's House

Barrel Brothers
Walk Around
Supa GFK
Rec Room Therapy
Paisley Darts
Shakey Dog starring Lolita
Killa Lipstick
Slow Down

Sadly one of the more ignored albums in ghost's collective, Big Doe is not nearly as bad as most Wu-heads on here seem to believe. More a less a collection of good tracks sorely lacking in the Wu-Tang spirit production wise.

Track average 2.62
Weighted score 1.50
Total Score = 4.12

2.5 Stars


#35 - Immobilarity

Artist - Raekwon
Year - 1999

# of Classic Tracks = 4
Casablanca
Live From New York
The Table
Sneakers

Yae Yo
100 Rounds
Real Life
Jury
Fuck Them


Great lyrics cannot make up for the uninspired production on Raekwon's sophomore album that plays as well, sophomoric. The strongest tracks are the only ones that combine both facets of musical composition.

Track average 2.40
Weighted score 2.00
Total Score = 4.40

2.5 Stars



#34 - More Fish

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 2006

# of Classic Tracks = 6
Guns N' Razors
Street Opera
Josephine
You Know I'm No Good
Alex (Stolen Script)
Miguel Sanchez

Ghost is Back
Blue Armor
Grew Up Hard

Leftovers from the Fishscale album are thrown together and rushed out just 6 months after Fishscale's release. Still the album could be much worse. Great production and fine vocals make this a worthwhile listen, despite the junk title.

Track average 2.59
Weighted score 2.40
Total Score = 4.99

2.5 Stars




#33 - Made in Brooklyn

Artist - Masta Killa
Year - 2006

# of Classic Tracks = 4
It's What It Is
Iron God Chamber
Street Corner
Ringin' Bells

ENY House
Nehanda and Cream
Pass the Bone (remix)
East MC's

Just two years after his long awaited debut, Masta Killa drops Made in Brooklyn. Nobody could expect him to achieve what he did with his first album, and he doesn't, save the top 4 tracks, all brilliant compositions.

Track average 2.60
Weighted score 2.60
Total Score = 5.20

3 Stars




#32 - Digi Snacks

Artist - RZA
Year - 2008

# of Classic Tracks = 3
You Can't Stop Me Now
Money Don't Own Me
Don't Be Afraid

Long Time Coming
Try Ya Ya Ya
Drama
Up Again


One of the most divisive albums in the Wu collective in terms of fan appreciation, Digi Snacks features diverse production from the RZA. While it most certainly isn't the greatest flowing album, there is something for everybody on here.

Track average 2.09
Weighted score 3.20
Total Score = 5.29

3 Stars




#31 - The Movement

Artist - Inspectah Deck
Year - 2003

# of Classic Tracks = 4
City High
Who Got It
Shorty Right There
Vendetta

That Shit
The Movement
It's Like That
The Stereotype
That Nigga


Easily one of the more overlooked albums in the collective, The Movement is a collection of songs that showcase Inspectah Deck's lyrical talent and his range in subject matter. Vendetta and City High in particular are shining gems in Deck's repertoire.

Track average 2.33
Weighted score 3.00
Total Score = 5.33

3 Stars




#30 - Nigga Please

Artist - Ol' Dirty Bastard
Year - 1999

# of Classic Tracks = 2
Got Your Money
Nigga Please

I Can't Wait
Cold Blooded
Rollin' With You
You Don't Want To Fuck With Me
I Want Pussy
All In Together Now
Gettin High


A sad drop in quality from Dirty's first album, Nigga Please features production from the Neptunes and wild lyrics from the late Big Baby Jesus. Obviously sentimentally overrated.

Track average 2.82
Weighted score 2.80
Total Score = 5.62

3 Stars




#29 - The Pretty Toney Album

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 2004

# of Classic Tracks = 4
Biscuits
Holla
Be This Way
Run

Beat the Clock
It's Over


Dropping the "Killah" from his name, Ghostface attempts to bring his R+B fans closer with this soulful record that may be a disappointment to the more hardcore Wu-Tang fans. Those with a heart will genuinely love it.

Track average 2.38
Weighted score 3.40
Total Score = 5.78

3 Stars




#28 - 4:21...The Day After

Artist - Method Man
Year - 2006

# of Classic Tracks = 6
Intro
4:20
The Glide
Say
Konichiwa Bitches
Presidential MC

Is It Me
Somebody Done Fucked Up
Dirty Mef
Everything


A solid offering after the very poor prequel album, 4:21 the Day After is anchored by RZA beat contributions. Presidential MC in particular is classic Wu-Tang, and one of the best Wu-Tang songs of the new century.

Track average 2.69
Weighted score 3.10
Total Score = 5.79

3 Stars





#27 - Bulletproof Wallets

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 2001

# of Classic Tracks = 5
Maxine
Strawberry
The Forest
Walking Through the Darkness
The Hilton

Street Chemistry

Virtually destroyed what could have been a classic album due to sample clearance issues, Wallets none the less is a decent offering by Ghost with lush production and visceral lyrics.

Track average 2.67
Weighted score 3.30
Total Score = 5.97

3 Stars




#26 - Dopium

Artist - U-God
Year - 2009

# of Classic Tracks = 5
Train Trussle
God is Love
Stomp Da Roach
Dopium
New Classic

Wu-Tang

A very fine effort by U-God after his disastrous Mr. Xcitement album, the only drawback is a huge one. Three remixes on the end of the album destroy the track average and bring down what could have been a top 20 album.

Track average 2.18
Weighted score 3.80
Total Score = 5.98

3 Stars




#25 - Digital Bullet

Artist - RZA
Year - 2001

# of Classic Tracks = 6
Show You Love
Glocko Pop
Must Be Bobby
Brooklyn Babies
Do U
Sickness

Can't Loose
Fools
Black Widow part 2
Be a Man

Build Strong

The follow up to RZA's debut, Digital Bullet features strange experimental production by RZA. In some places (Brooklyn Babies, Sickness) it works, in others it doesn't.

Track average 2.88
Weighted score 3.50
Total Score = 6.38

3.5 Stars




#24 - Golden Arms Redemption

Artist - U-God
Year - 1999

# of Classic Tracks = 6
Turbulence
Dat's Gangsta
Bizarre
Rumble
Pleasure or Pain
Night the City Cried

Soul Dazzle
Shell Shock
Lay Down
Turbo Charge


The definition of an album that grows on you, GAR is U-God's uneven debut. Sorely missing guest appearances from his Wu-breathren, U-God admirably goes at it, mostly by himself.

Track average 3.00
Weighted score 3.60
Total Score = 6.60

3.5 Stars





#23 - Chamber Music

Artist - Wu-Tang Clan
Year - 2009

# of Classic Tracks = 5
Radiant Jewels
Evil Deeds
Ill Figures
Sound the Horns
NYC Crack

Kill Too Hard

Although not technically a Wu-Tang album, and not technically a complete album, Chamber Music is a fine album with 8 new tracks that are all good, and features live instrumentation.

Track average 3.00
Weighted score 3.70
Total Score = 6.70

3.5 Stars





#22 - Birth of a Prince

Artist - RZA
Year - 2003

# of Classic Tracks = 5
Chi Kung
Koto Chotan
A Day to God is 1000 Years
The Birth
See the Joy

Bob N' I
The Grunge
Grits
Fast Cars
You'll Never Know


Rza's temporary transition from his Bobby Digital persona to Prince Rakeem is an interesting album full of 5% knowledge. Although largely overlooked, this is clearly an album that grows on you.

Track average 2.94
Weighted score 4.00
Total Score = 6.94

3.5 Stars





#21 - Legend of a Liquid Sword

Artist - GZA
Year - 2002

# of Classic Tracks = 6
Auto Bio
Silent
Knock Knock
Animal Planet
Fam (Members Only)
Sparring Minds

Did Ya Say That?
Fame
Highway Robbery
Luminal
Uncut Material


If this indeed is GZA's worst album, that says a lot about how great his personal collection is. Brilliant lyrics and fine production highlight this effort from the Clan's oldest general.

Track average 3.02
Weighted score 4.15
Total Score = 7.17

4 Stars




#20 - Uncontrolled Substance

Artist - Inspectah Deck
Year - 1999

# of Classic Tracks = 7
9th Chamber
The Grand Prix
Word on the Street
Lovin' You
Rec Room
Friction
Hyperdermix

Movas & Shakers
Uncontrolled Substance
Show N Prove


It's sad to think about how great this album could have been, had not a flood destroyed the original version of this album. Still, it's well put together and although it lacks RZA production on many of the songs, Deck makes up for it with his dexterous tongue.

Track average 3.08
Weighted score 4.10
Total Score = 7.18

4 Stars




#19 - Fishscale

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 2006

# of Classic Tracks = 8
Shakey Dog
Kilo
The Champ
9 Milli. Bros.
R.A.G.U.
Whip You With a Strap
Be Easy
Underwater

Crack Spot
Clipse Of Doom
Big Girl
Three Bricks


Although reviews amongst fans are mostly divided, the critics all seemed to agree that this was one of the Wu-Tang's best albums in the post Forever era. Quite simply it is loaded.

Track average 2.92
Weighted score 4.30
Total Score = 7.22

4 Stars


#18 - Iron Flag

Artist - Wu-Tang Clan
Year - 2001

# of Classic Tracks = 8
In the Hood
Rules
Uzi (Pinky Ring)
Y'all Been Warned
Babies
Radioactive
Iron Flag/The Glock
The W

Dashing (Reasons)

Arguably the worst of the full length Wu-Tang albums, Iron Flag is still a very good album full of bangers and full of post 9-11 rhetoric. Coming just a year after the W, the album still manages to be a very complete, well put together creation and it features the best Wu-Tang track of the new century, the title track Iron Flag.

Track average 3.34
Weighted score 3.90
Total Score = 7.24

4 Stars



#17 - Only Built for Cuban Linx...part II

Artist - Raekwon
Year - 2009

# of Classic Tracks = 9
House of Flying Daggers
Cold Outside
Black Mozart
Gihad
New Wu
Ason Jones
10 Bricks
Kiss the Ring
Walk Wit Me

Sonny's Missing
Pyrex Vision
Surgical Gloves
Broken Safety
Have Mercy
Catalina
Mean Streets


Raekwon's follow up to his classic debut, OB4CL2 is a mind bending thrill ride which evokes emotions of the mid-nineties. Clearly one of the best post Forever offerings.

Track average 2.86
Weighted score 4.55
Total Score = 7.41

4 Stars



#16 - Pro Tools

Artist - GZA
Year - 2008

# of Classic Tracks = 6
Pencil
Alphabets
Groundbreaking
7 Pounds
0% Finance
Path of Destruction

Paper Plate
Colombian Ties
Firehouse
Cinema
Life is a Movie


GZA's latest outing was highly appreciated by critics and most fans. It features lush production and once again excellent lyrics by the ingenious word smith. Pencil and Alphabets are among the best tracks of the new century.

Track average 3.46
Weighted score 4.05
Total Score = 7.51

4 Stars





#15 - 8 Diagrams

Artist - Wu-Tang Clan
Year - 2007

# of Classic Tracks = 10
Campfire
Take it Back
Rushing Elephants
The Heart Gently Weeps
Wolves
Gun Will Go
Stick Me For My Riches
Windmill
Weak Spot
Life Changes

Sunlight
16th Chamber


It's silly that infighting spoiled the shine of this clearly loaded album. RZA's new sound does absolutely nothing to detract from the clan, in fact it bolsters the lyrics and makes the music sound more rich.

Track average 3.43
Weighted score 4.20
Total Score = 7.63

4 Stars



#14 - Tical 2000 : Judgment Day

Artist - Method Man
Year - 1998

# of Classic Tracks = 9
Dangerous Grounds
Sweet Love
Shaolin What
Torture
Suspect Chin Music
Spazzola
Grid Iron Rap
Killin' Fields
Judgment Day

Perfect World
Cradle Rock
Play IV Keeps
Break Ups 2 Make Ups
Snuffed Out

Although bogged down by as many skits as Chamber Music, here is another record that is filled with bangers. Method Man's follow up to Tical may actually be better, but it's poorly constructed.

Track average 3.29
Weighted score 4.35
Total Score = 7.64

4 Stars




#13 - The W

Artist - Wu-Tang Clan
Year - 2000

# of Classic Tracks = 8
Shaolin Finger Jab/Chamber Music
Careful (Click Click)
Hollow Bones
One Blood Under W
Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)
I Can't Go To Sleep
Do You Really (Thang, Thang)
Gravel Pit

Redbull
Let My Niggas Live
The Monument
Jah World


The third group release from Wu, The W is a well put together, smoothly flowing album with few mistakes, unlike it's follow up Iron Flag. Amazing stand out tracks abound here.

Track average 3.35
Weighted score 4.45
Total Score = 7.80

4 Stars




#12 - RZA as Bobby Digital in Stereo

Artist - RZA
Year - 1998

# of Classic Tracks = 9
B.O.B.B.Y.
Unspoken Word
NYC Everything
Mantis
Holocaust (Silkworm)
Kiss of a Black Widow
My Lovin' is Digi
Domestic Violence
Terrorist

Airwaves
Love Jones
Bobby Did It (Spanish Fly)
Lab Drunk
Fuck What You Think

RZA becomes even more experimental production wise, taking a bold step into the unknown on this album. Most of it works, some doesn't. Still a near classic.

Track average 3.45
Weighted score 4.50
Total Score = 7.95

4 Stars






#11 - Grandmasters

Artist - GZA
Year - 2005

# of Classic Tracks = 7
Destruction Of A Guard
Exploitation Of Mistakes
General Principles
Advance Pawns
Queen's Gambit
All In Together Now
Unstoppable Threats

Those That's Bout It
Unprotected Pieces
Illusory Protection
Smothered Mate


The best thing about this album isn't what it has, it's what it doesn't have. This album doesn't have a bad track on it. With uniform flowing production by Muggs and GZA's apt word play once again, this album is a very easy listen. While it may seem high at #11, the track average is one of the highest in the post Forever era (10th overall), despite the lack of classic tracks.

Track average 3.91
Weighted score 4.25
Total Score = 8.16

4.5 Stars

#10 - Return to the 36 Chambers :
The Dirty Version


Artist - Ol' Dirty Bastard
Year - 1995

# of Classic Tracks = 10
Shimmy Shimmy Ya
Baby C'mon
Brooklyn Zoo
Hippa To the Hoppa
Rawhide
Damage
Snakes
Brooklyn Zoo II
Protect ya Neck II (In The Zoo)
Cuttin' Headz

Don't You Know
The Stomp
Goin Down
Dirty Dancing


Dirty's debut is one of the most eclectic hip hop albums of all time. It features wild production by RZA and even crazier lyrics by the Dirt Dog. A great experience.

Track average 3.66
Weighted score 4.70
Total Score = 8.36

4.5 Stars


#9 - Beneath the Surface

Artist - GZA
Year - 1999

# of Classic Tracks = 9
Amplified Sample
Beneath The Surface
Crash Your Crew
Breaker Breaker
High Price Small Reward
Hip Hop Fury
1112
Publicity
Mic Trippin'

Victim
Feel Like an Enemy


GZA continues his formula of making short but loaded albums with Beneath the Surface. Although RZA takes a back seat on this one, producing just one track, Arabian Knight and Mathematics fill in for the bulk of the album admirably. This is a more modern Wu-Tang sound.

Track average 4.07
Weighted score 4.40
Total Score = 8.47

4.5 Stars



#8 - No Said Date

Artist - Masta Killa
Year - 2004

# of Classic Tracks = 9
No Said Date
D.T.D.
Whatever
Secret Rivals
Old Man
Queen
School
Silverbacks
Masta Killa

Last Drink
Digi Warfare


After a 10 year wait for the last Wu-Tang member to drop his solo album, Masta Killa didn't disappoint. Dark, classic Wu-Tang production highlights this near perfect effort. A modern Wu-Tang classic.

Track average 3.88
Weighted score 4.60
Total Score = 8.48

4.5 Stars




#7 - Tical

Artist - Method Man
Year - 1994

# of Classic Tracks = 8
Tical
Biscuits
Bring the Pain
All I Need
What the Blood Clot
Meth Vs. Chef
Relese Yo Delf
Mr. Sandman

Sub Crazy
P.L.O. Style
I Get my Thang in Action
Stimulation


The first and perhaps least of the first round of solos, Tical is highlighted by RZA's crazy production and Mef's best on the mic. This is absolutely an album that takes getting used to, but patient listeners will be rewarded by the intricate, spastic sounds it provides.

Track average 4.05
Weighted score 4.65
Total Score = 8.70

4.5 Stars



#6 - Supreme Clientele

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 2000

# of Classic Tracks = 10
Nutmeg
One
Ghost Deini
Apollo Kids
Buck 50
Mighty Healthy
We Made It
Malcolm
Child's Play
Wu Banga 101

Saturday Nite
The Grain
Stay True
Stroke Of Death
Cherchez La Ghost


The best post Forever album, and it's not really that close. Supreme Clientele is proof that the sophmore curse isn't absolute. It's arguable that this is Ghost's magnum opus, an album full of intense drug stories and sick beats, as well as a multitude of reminiscent feelings and emotional outbursts. A very personal album.

Track average 3.93
Weighted score 4.80
Total Score = 8.73

4.5 Stars



#5 - Ironman

Artist - Ghostface Killah
Year - 1996

# of Classic Tracks = 11
Iron Maiden
Wildflower
260
Assassination Day
Winter Warz
Box in Hand
Fish
Daytona 500
Black Jesus
After the Smoke is Clear
All That I Got Is You

The Faster Blade
Poisonous Darts
Camay
Motherless Child
The Soul Controller
Marvel


I find it amazing that Motherless Child, Camay, and Poisonous Dartz didn't make the cut, and yet this album still has 11 classic tracks. Ghost is backed by RZA's most soulful production to date, and he shines with help from Raekwon and Cappadonna.

Track average 3.99
Weighted score 4.75
Total Score = 8.74

4.5 Stars



#4 - Wu-Tang Forever

Artist - Wu-Tang Clan
Year - 1997

# of Classic Tracks = 18
Reunited
For Heaven's Sake
Cash Still Rules/Scary Hours
Visionz
As High as Wu-Tang Get
Severe Punishment
Older Gods
A Better Tomorrow
It's Yourz
Triumph
Impossible
Deadly Melody
Bells of War
The M.G.M
Dog Shit
Duck Seazon
Hellz Wind Staff
Heaterz

Maria
Little Ghetto Boys
The City
The Projects
Sunshower

The double disc masterpiece, Wu-Tang Forever is the second most popular album but drops to forth due to track average. (6th Overall)
No album can touch it's number of bangers, and no album can touch it's diverse production by RZA.

Track average 4.04
Weighted score 4.95
Total Score = 8.99

4.5 Stars




#3 - Only Built for Cuban Linx...

Artist - Raekwon
Year - 1995

Knuckleheadz
Knowledge God
Criminology
Incarcerated Scarfaces
Rainy Dayz
Guillotine (swordz)
Can it Be All So Simple (remix)
Ice Water
Glaciers of Ice
Verbal Intercourse
Wisdom Body
Ice Cream
Wu-Gambinos
Heaven & Hell
Northstar

Spot Rushers

The original rap mafioso album, OB4CL has been copied but never duplicated. Amazingly every track except Spot Rusherz was nominated a classic.

Track average 4.54
Weighted score 4.85
Total Score = 9.39

5 Stars



#2 - Liquid Swords

Artist - GZA
Year - 1995

# of Classic Tracks = 13
Liquid Swords
Duel of the Iron Mic
Living in the World Today
Gold
Cold World
Labels
4th Chamber
Shadowboxin'
Killah Hillz 10304
Investigative Reports
Swordsman/Unexplained
I Gotcha Back
BIBLE

One of the darkest and greatest albums in the history of hip hop, Liquid Swords is a perfect album. Every track was nominated a classic and deservedly so.

Track average 4.66
Weighted score 4.90
Total Score = 9.56

5 Stars

Superb - nice work. Enjoyed reading that

Edit - actually - thinking about it - I guess this explains why I, and obviously many others, became so obsessed by the Wu - and this list doesn't include monsters releases like Heavy Mental, Last Shall be First, Killarmy, Swarm etc.

Will there ever be another movement like the Wu?

I had to go back and fix something. Pro Tools seemed oddly high to me, and sure enough I made a mistake on the averages. Fixed now, from #12 to #16.

Will there ever be another movement like the Wu?
I dunno.


This list is just the generals, it would be really hard to calculate just where those albums would fall because killa bee polls don't get that much participation.

Great work as usual B, you didn't waste your time, this sounds really coherent and matches what I've hear here and there on the Corp.

BR - no criticism intended - was just highlighting that there are so many great realeases on that list - and it doesn't include (what are to me anyway) some of the great Wu releases.

I'm sure many people did, but the voting certainly didn't reflect that, it averaged less than 2 out of 5 in the track averages. Maybe it needs more time, remember it's only a month old and there are like 5 women on this site.
